Tidbits

  • “Jungle Book” tells the tale of Mowgli, a 25-year-old architect living in New York City, who is transported back to his childhood in the jungles of India, when he receives a “Happy Birthday, Wolf Boy” text from his sister, Maya. He finds an old journal (known as his “jungle book”) and relives the stories of his youth: Becoming lost in the jungle as a toddler, being adopted by wolves, learning the laws of the jungle from a bear and panther and more. Mowgli learns to “let in the jungle” and connect the human world with the natural world. But he has a choice to make: Is he a wolf or a boy?
  • The family-friendly performance will feature familiar characters, from Baloo the bear to Bagheera the panther.
  • The performance is approximately 65 minutes in length. There will be an opportunity to meet performers in the lobby following show.
  • “Jungle Book”-themed activities will be available for children through “Page to Stage,” a program that provides free activities inspired by Family Series performances, at Carnegie-Stout Public Library, Dubuque County libraries and East Dubuque (Ill.) District Library.
